Where it's at:
Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa in Midtown Manhattan

Description: This brand-new tech-based beauty solution for the tech-obsessed client, incepted by esthetician Joanna Czech, is a neck treatment that includes a gentle and soothing massage to combat the results of a new phenomenon she has noticed: the continual use of PDA's such as iPhone and Blackberry creating lines and stress on the neck from looking down to text, tweet, e-mail, etc.

Process: This new facial includes elements of Czech's favorite treatments by using a custom combination of technology-based techniques (the Sapphire Facial—a treatment that uses granules to minimize fine lines and tighten skin with LED therapy) and an intense exfoliation treatment that includes a neck cleansing, a peel with sapphire stones, a hydrating serum and lymphatic drainage. The whole process is topped off with an oxygen mask.

Celebrities who have done the service: Kate Winslet, Uma Thurman, Kim Cattrall, Penelope Cruz

Brands used: Environ, Biologique Recherche and Nude skincare

45 minutes
